on this show we compared the elected republicans of the great state of michigan to the honey badger, because the michigan republicans don't believe a care. at the time they planned to rig the election, so effectively the democrat couldn't win office again. the plan was to change the way we vote for president, under current law, most states allocate the votes to the winner as a whole. the plan was to change this in several blue states, states that vote democratic in presidential elections, they wouldn't do it everywhere, just some states. so oklahoma and arkansas and other safe red states, they would continue to deliver every single one of their electoral votes to the republican candidate for president. they wouldn't change a thing there. blue states like michigan or virginia, they would have to give away more than half of their votes to the republican side. so the red state gets the whole electoral votes. but a blue state just gets some of those votes. you still have to give some of them to the republican, the result, of course is the giant thumb on the scale for the republican hopefuls. ear

position. in michigan last year, a woman at the violence against women act grant recipient used some of those funds to purchase goods and services for her personal use. so after all those examples, the point is this: we should make sure that violence against women act money goes to victims. that hasn't been the case under the current situation. and the substitute works towards improving that situation. the substitute also prevents grantees from using taxpayers' funds to lobby for more taxpayers' funds. that seems to be pretty commonsense. so my amendment will ensure that more money is available for victim services. that's where the money is supposed to go. money that goes to grantees and is squandered helps no woman or other victims. in addition, the republican alternative limits the amount of violence against women funds that can go to administrative fees and salaries to just 7.5%. the present dwrund lying bill, s. 47, contains no such limit. if you want the money to go to victims and not to bureaucrats, those overhead expenses, then, should be capped. the republican substitute amen
